Circle back and try to solve the problem another way?  It depends on why it would be rejected.

It should be zero.  The point of the review process is to weigh the merits of a proposal.

In any case, FWIW, I don’t find your email very helpful, since you’re not actually talking about technical merits of the proposal: you’re encouraging speculation about politics :-)
